Built in types in c#

There are many Built-in type in C#

Boolean Type  : In Boolean type  variable can hold only true or false value whether in many other programming language a boolean type variable can hold 0 or 1 also. If you would assign any integer value then compiler get error in the code.

Integeral Type : sbyte , byte, short, ushort, int, uint, long, ulong, char. If you want to know that how much bytes a Integer can hold. Check it now in my previous post. Decimal precision is not available in integeral data type. So for decimal value we should use floating type variable.  

Floating type : float and double. If you want to use some precision type value then you choose floating type. A floating type can hold 32bit and double can 64bit value.

float: 7 precision
double : 15-15 precision. 

Decimal Type : A decimal data type much have precision value approx 28-29 significant digits. Also a Double data type can hold 128bit value. 

String type : A string is basically enclosed in double quotes.If you want to store a name of person then you should use string type variable. such as

string name="jacob";

here is the first quote define the beginning of the string and last quote define the end of the string.If you will run this type then output comes without quote string. If you want to print string in double quote then you should use "\" (backslash) or you can say use escape sequence character. lets take a simple example

string name= "\"jacob\"";

Escape sequence character : there are special character that has special meaning in c# compiler. Also you can say its a non printable character such as line break , carriage return. According to msdn article there are some special escape sequence characters.these are
\a : bell(alert)
\b : backspace
\f : formfeed
\n: newline
\r: carriage return
\t: Horizontal tab
\v : vertical tab.
\' : single quotation mark
\" : Double quotation mark.
\\ : backslash.

Example of Boolean Type :

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            bool yes = true;
            System.Console.WriteLine(yes);
            Console.ReadKey();

        }
    }
}

Output
Boolean Type output in c#

1

Note : Get error in the code if you assign any other number to boolean type

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            bool yes = 0;
            System.Console.WriteLine(yes);
            Console.ReadKey();

        }
    }
}

Output

Get error in the code if you assign any other number to boolean type

Example of floating type value and decimal type values

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication2
{
    class Program
    {
       static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            float f = 1.22222244444444f;
            Console.WriteLine(f);
            Console.ReadKey();
        }
    }

}
Output
Float type variable

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video



Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:


      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,



  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,


The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:




 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
